Little girl gets a new prosthetic leg and her friends react in the sweetest way
Birmingham, England, is home to the adorable 7-year-old Anu, a cheerful kid whose favorite colors are violet and pink. Anu had her leg amputated soon after her birth, and has been walking on prosthetics her whole life.
Recently, though, she was able to get a blade prosthetic, allowing her to run and participate in activities in ways that she couldn’t before. And, yeah, it’s also pink.
When Anu debuted her new blade at school, her friends couldn’t have reacted in a cuter way.
“Is that your new pink leg?” one of them asked. Another said “wow!” Then they gave her some superlatively sweet hugs and quickly got to putting it to use, running around the playground holding hands.
Sorry, are you not crying yet? Well, here’s another video of her at home shortly after receiving the blade, talking about how great it is and running around with her dad.
That should do the trick. Oh wait, everyone was already crying after the first one:
The BBC Midlands report also goes into detail on how her family covered the cost of a blade prosthetic, a secondary prosthetic that Anu was able to get custom made for free through the UK’s National Health Service.
